Recollections & Sympathy For the Family
Post Comment
Chris's family lived across Corinth Street in North Adams while I was growing up. We went to Mark Hopkins School and she went on to St. Joe's for High School before heading to Our Lady of the Elms for college. Wonderful spirit and awesome family -- I remember helping to make paper ornaments for their Christmas tree while her Mom served fresh cookies from her oven. Great memories of a really 'fun spirit' who couldn't wait to be a teacher. Condolences to Ted and the entire family. May she rest in eternal peace.
